I think there shouldn't be much of an impact to the league with the salary cap $5 million higher than originally forecast. The cap is due to be $128 million in 2009, not $123 million. The reasons it won't be much of a factor is that, from the looks of the cap sheets, there's only one team -- Kansas City -- that will have to spend more than it wanted to this year in order to get to the 86.4-percent-of-the-cap salary floor. The Chiefs are $31.1-million under the cap now, without any incumbent veterans to spend the money on because none have proven themselves to the new administration. They probably need to spend about $15 million in cap dollars to get to the floor.
